New Glasgow restaurant to launch with Michelin Star ambitions
An exciting new restaurant is set to launch in Glasgow’s Finnieston area with hopes to achieve the city’s first Michelin star in almost 17 years.
Following a successful career with Geoffrey Smeddle at fine dining restaurant Étain, Martin Wishart at Loch Lomond and the luxury Isle of Eriska Hotel, award-winning Scottish Chef Graeme Cheevers will be launching ‘Unalome’ as his first solo venture in February 2021 on Kelvingrove Street. No stranger to the Michelin guide, Graeme has won the industry’s ultimate accolade at both Martin Wishart at Loch Lomond and Isle of Eriska Hotel last year. He is hoping to continue that success with Unalome and put Glasgow back on the map of the UK’s best cities for quality food and drink.
He said: “There is nowhere else I would rather launch my own restaurant than in my home city of Glasgow. It is scary going solo, but I feel like I’m now at a point in my career where I’m ready and I have the confidence and experience to take it forward and make it a success.
“Unalome will be a dining experience unlike anything else you’ll find in the city. But, it will also be accessible and relaxed so that everyone can come and enjoy it. I don’t want it to be an occasion restaurant – I want people to visit again and again and experience something slightly different every time.
“We’re hitting the ground running and have high hopes to achieve Glasgow’s first Michelin star since 2004 within our first year. To follow the successes of Andrew Fairlie or Gordon Ramsay in Glasgow would be incredible. I can’t wait to get started.”
